Posting Regulation

 

The posting of printed literature, posters, placards and banners on campus (except in residence halls) must be approved by the Scheduling Office (located on the fourth floor of the Student Center) or the Center for Student Involvement (Student Center Annex 104). Student organzitions should go to the Center for Studnet Involvement for approvals. The posting of non-University related materials is limited to designated areas. Posting in a residence hall must be approved by the appropriate residence hall director. Department and designated organization boards are maintained by the respective department organization and are not available for general use. The name of the sponsoring department, group, or organization must be printed legibly on all materials. The University encourages sensitivity to all members of our diverse community in postings.

  •  A. Materials may be posted on campus bulletin boards and kiosks only (excluding special purpose bulletin boards specifically designated by campus departments or groups). A bulletin board is defined as a tackable board surrounded on all four sides by a frame. Kiosk panels are designed for tape, not tacks, and are also surrounded by a frame.
  • B. Tacks and staples are to be used on bulletin boards (no tape or other adhesives). Only removable tape is to be used on kiosks. Items are not to be attached to bulletin board and kiosk frames or surrounding areas.
